Chelsea vs. Leeds United FA Cup Match Analysis

On Wednesday, 28th February 2024, Chelsea will be hosting Leeds United at Stamford Bridge for a fifth-round tie in the FA Cup.

This match comes after Chelsea’s disappointing EFL Cup final loss to Liverpool on Sunday, and Leeds United’s 3-1 victory over Championship leaders Leicester City on Friday night.

Match Preview

Having lost their last game, Chelsea is seeking redemption in the FA Cup, where they have already beaten Preston North End 4-0 in round one before an impressive fourth-round replay victory over Aston Villa.

They are aiming to progress past the fifth round of the FA Cup for the seventh time out of the last eight seasons.

Leeds United, who remain unbeaten in the Championship in 2024, have won nine straight games since the turn of the year.

They have only failed to win one game since January 1st, which was their initial FA Cup fourth-round tie with Plymouth Argyle.

However, they rectified their errors with a 4-1 extra-time victory at Home Park, thereby reaching the fifth round for the second year running.

Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Leeds United

Leeds United has only conceded four goals in their 12-game unbeaten run, which shows their excellent defensive structure.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will be looking to make amends for their recent loss and restore some pride with a slender win to reach the quarter-finals.
